Doc Holiday backs Milt and Jeanne Dirken with a magic potion (petroleum jelly) from a grease pit on their land. He markets it, sells shares, and has the property blocked off preventing travelers from crossing the grease pit which is right on their private road out of town. Wyatt with the help of Mrs. Holiday, finds a solution to alleviate the risk of a gunfight with Jim Dunn's outfit by having Mayor Jim Kelley purchase the land and product from the Dirkens, with Doc's own money ($40,000.00) which he had given to Mrs. Holiday to leave him for good.

Did You Know?
The notorious Dr. John H. Holliday had a running feud with Dodge City. In fact, Doc had a running feud with the world and life itself. The only man to whom he acknowledged the slightest loyalty was Wyatt Earp. But when Holliday decided to back Milton G. Durkin in a dispute with some very tough men, it appeared that Doc and Wyatt would clash in a standup gunfight.
